Huge winds in Malta, over 60 knot winds clocked. Grand Harbour Marina is one of the greatest natural harbours and my Beneteau 46 had no damage whatsoever...

Re: BIG storm in the Med

It has been a bad weather winter in the Med this year. It started with the Medicane and just continued. It was not only Malta that got hit hard with last one but also Crete really got hit hard.

We are lucky in choosing Israel for the winter. The locals say this is the worst winter they have ever seen but to us this is just spring and a great place to be. We simply love Israel for the winter and just wish we had discovered it earlier.
just our thoughts and opinions
